It will also open the ‘Forest Pavilion’, an experience centre built to showcase the vision and concept of the project through extraordinary immersive experiences designed and brought to life by the world’s most eminent specialists.

“The Forest Pavilion experience centre has more than 6,500 square metres of floor space to let people really feel what this project is about through multi-sensory experiences,” said Kittiphun Ouiyamaphun, The Forestias's project director.

“It will help people see how this is a town in which every aspect is designed for healthier and happier living as well as showcases sample units of the multiple residential components within The Forestias.”

The Forest Pavilion experience centre was created through a collaboration between MQDC and a group of specialist organisations and people among the best in the world in their respective fields. It was designed by UK-headquartered architectural firm Foster+Partners Thailand. ITEC Entertainment (USA), the creator of entertainment experiences for Disneyland, DisneySea and Universal Studios, developed experiences and recreational activities inside the project. VAVE Studio of Germany created experiential stories in different zones of the pavilion. And Thailand’s famous Bug Studio contributed multi-disciplinary designs to present unprecedented experiences.

One of the highlights inside the Forest Pavilion is the ‘Chamber of Secrets’ where the project’s vision is presented through an animation created by DEC Media and T&B Media Global (Thailand).

The Chamber of Secrets is an amazing wrap-around sensation which environs the viewers exciting experience with "The Wall" screens surrounded them. The Wall is a modular microLED display that gives a revolutionary viewing experience utilising AI picture enhancement for ultra-realistic experiences.

“The Forestias is a new global prototype for a town development. It has been designed and is being built by some of the world’s most respected experts as well as foremost global and local organisations to ensure that residents can lead healthier and happier lives.”

 “The global Covid-19 pandemic has been a reminder to everyone about the importance of good health and a healthy environment in which to live," said Mr Kittiphun.

"People have increased the importance they attach to choosing a home and an environment that promotes a healthy life, where they can be safe, as well as where they can get closer to nature. Managing air quality and light inside the residences, as well as designing good home layouts and careful material selection make the project exceptional.”

One of the most unusual features of The Forestias is a 30-rai forest area at the centre of the development that has been planted from seeds and saplings. There is a 1.6 kilometre ‘canopy walkway’ that links many of the development’s components and provides a ‘nature-walk’ weaving above the forest. These features are inspired by the belief that living closer to the various wonders of nature is one of the most important factors in bringing happiness to people.

Located on a 398-rai plot of land on Bang Na-Trat Road km 7, The Forestias includes multiple residential components, commercial space for offices, a sports complex, lifestyle and family entertainment facilities, retail and food & beverage outlets, as well as a Town Centre for community activities and cultural pursuits, a family centre, a theatre, an event hall, and multiple markets.

Among the residential components at The Forestias are three ‘Whizdom’ high-rise condominium buildings that are designed to perfectly suit the lifestyles of first jobbers and couples starting families while one building is specifically designed to meet the needs of pet lovers.

There are also ‘Mulberry Grove’ low-rise condominiums that bring residents very close to nature, as well as ‘Mulberry Grove Villas’ cluster-home residences for extended, multi-generational families who wish to live close together in multiple homes that connect easily.

Another offering is ‘The Aspen Tree’ residences. These are designed to suit the special needs of older residents and come with lifetime care services.

Also available are ‘Six Senses’ residences that are super luxury villas, which are managed by the globally admired ‘Six Senses’ brand.
